You see these buses everywhere - for good reason!

Now these look fun! I actually found the garage to this company while wandering Barcelona's backstreets, but never got a chance to try them out. These little go-carts look like cars but are mopeds in the eyes of the law, which means they can drive and park where normally only bikes are allowed to go.

Note: you need your driver's license with you. Insurance is included.
